THERE IS SHORT STORY OF THE PENCIL HISTORY
 
LONG TIME AGO, GREEK ARTISTS USED TO DRAW ON PAPYRUS USING A METAL STYLUS. IN CUMBRIA ENGLAND, THERE WERE LARGE DEPOSITS OF GRAPHITE. LOCALS USED THE GRAPHITE FOR MARKING SHEEP. ALTHOUGH GRAPHITE WAS SOLID, IT WAS SOFT THAT IT NEEDED A CASE BEFORE YOU CAN USE IT EASILY.
 
EARLY CIVILIZATION USED SHEEPSKIN TO WRAP THE GRAPHITE. ENGLAND CONTINUED TO PRODUCE PENCILS WHILE IN 1662; NUREMBERG GERMANY ATTEMPTED TO MANUFACTURE PENCILS USING A MIXTURE OF GRAPHITE, ANTIMONY AND SULPHUR. ITALY WAS THE FIRST TO USE WOODEN HOLDERS.
 
THEY CARVED TWO WOODEN HALVES AND INSERTED THE GRAPHITE STICK.
THE WOODEN HALVES WERE THEN GLUED TOGETHER.
 

MANY YEARS LATER, EBENEZER WOOD IN AMERICA AUTOMATED THE PROCESS OF PENCIL MAKING.

JOSEPH DIXON FOUND A WAY TO MASS PRODUCE PENCILS. HYMEN LIPMAN ATTACHED THE ERASER TO THE PENCIL.
 
TODAY, ANNUAL PRODUCTION OF A PENCIL IS AT AROUND 14 BILLION PENCILS.
 
THESE PENCILS MAY BE ROUND-SHAPED, TRIANGULAR OR HEXAGONAL. THERE ARE EVEN BENDABLE PENCILS. PENCIL VARIATIONS INCLUDE MECHANICAL PENCILS, WHICH HAS A MECHANISM THAT PUSHES THE LEAD THROUGH THE END. A QUADRA CHROMIC PENCIL HAS FOUR COLOURS AT ITS TIP.
